UChicago Summer High School Programs Pre-College

Chicago, IL

Overview

During the summer, the University of Chicago offers numerous opportunities to accomplished high school students. Tomorrow's undergraduates can immerse themselves in the University of Chicago's unique atmosphere as early as this summer.

Our signature Summer Programs for High School Students vary in their duration, costs, etc. and we are confident that you will find the right combination for your summer studies.

UChicago Immersion, Stones and Bones, and Research in the Biological Sciences are a carefully curated selection of pre-college summer programs whose courses are open only to high school students. These intensive 3 or 4-week summer courses are taught at the college level and kept small, offering both experiential and UChicago seminar-style learning. In addition to engaging in classroom discussions, you might use the latest lab equipment, dig for fossils, conduct research in Chicago neighborhoods, or work with some of the city's celebrated theater professionals, depending on the course selected.

High school students have the unique opportunity to tackle big problems and fundamental questions in the University's unique interdisciplinary style, while gaining rigorous training in critical thinking, reading, writing, and discussion skills to help prepare for college, in the UChicago Arts and Sciences Summer programs, either on campus in Chicago or in Asia, at the University of Chicago Centers in Beijing, Bengaluru, and Hong Kong.
